    bought one earlier this year after being on waiting list for about 2 months. OTD price was < $ 590. Worth the wait.
    I love mine. Trigger pull is 4½ lbs. It is accurate.
    I reload and have had some problems with lead. It seems to be very fussy re coal using lead, but if you get it right, it feeds flawlessly.
    If the coal is what it likes, it will fire lead s/wad-cutters with no problem.
    COAL on 230 fmj is 1.270 On lead r/n 230, it is 1.260. On lead 200 s/w, it is1.255.
    It is a very pretty pistol and I like the "enhanced" features such as the beavertail.
    Just my 2c worth

    Hey Jim, sounds good to me. I load most all my Jacketed stuff at 1.260/1.230, and the lead is about the same, so that will work for me. Plus each gun will have his own little likes/dislikes, but this is good that its eating everything without a hitch. Been wanting one for a while but can never find one. Hard to get.

    Amigo, I really appreciate the info.
    Enjoy that gun !

    Thanks guys...

    I'm getting closer to buying one, if I can find one that is !
    Plus, I need to sell two Glock 10mm's. A G20sf and a G29sf, both 100% with only a couple hundred rounds apiece through if that much...

    Any one interested PM me.
